Congratulations to Alexia Alexandraki who has received 2nd prize for her poster at the LIsMM Postgraduate Research Symposium, that was held last week.

Alexia's poster, entitled 'Exploring the potential of epigenetic therapy using targeted microbubbles for the treatment of colorectal cancer', helped her to sweep up the prize.

There were 31 posters at the Symposium, presented by postgraduate students from LIBACS, LICAP, LIRMM and Oral biology, so this is a fantastic achievement for Alexia.
